Adam Greenblatt, CEO of Roar Digital, said: “While these are trying times for the global population and there are so many unknowns, the one thing we do know is that there will be an end to this. It’s vital that industry leaders stay connected during this time, share ideas, and have a plan for once this is all over. The SBC Digital Summit is the perfect vehicle to facilitate this exchange and I am excited to participate.”

Sue Schneider, SBC’s VP of Growth and Strategy, said the BOSA track will bring together key industry leaders who offer unique and valuable perspectives to the table. “We started doing outreach for this as soon as we announced that our New Jersey event, Betting on Sports America, was postponed until December.
